Steam Flow Meter
Manas Microsystem is one of the best Steam Flow Meter Manufacturer, Supplier companies in India.
Model SFMc-150 steam flow meter is applicable for measuring flow rates of saturated and superheated steam, mass flow rates of Boiler feed Water in closed conduits. It is best suited for applications where affordability, reliability, and ruggedness are of prime concern.
It can be used as a heat energy transfer meter to measure thermal energy using various fluids (including thermic fluids / thermic oils) which are being used as the heat transfer medium.
The steam flow meter is a complete engineered package to suit user requirements. Hence there is no hassle during installation. There are no moving parts and hence the unit works without problem for a long period. No wiring connections are required during installation. Installation is easy because very little care needs to be taken at the site during installation to avoid leakages.

Comparison between Vortex Flow Meter and Orifice Flow Meter
|1.||Well established standards||Available||Not Available|
|2.||Suitability for high pressure & temperature application||Most suitable||Seal fails in majority of cases after a certain duration.|
|3.||Installation||Easy to install||Critical & expensive because of the requirement of special machined pipe lengths.|
|4.||Existing pipeline modifications for installation||No modifications are required.||Design is based on velocity & not on line size. As a result, line size at the site & selected flowmeter size may differ.|
|5.||Recalibration of transmitter||Easy & can be done in house||Has to be done on a flow-rig and hence is expensive|
|6.||Changes in Pressure, Temperature||Taken care of during density compensation||Needs to be taken care of.|
|7.||Effects on resolution due to increase in line size||No effect.||Resolution decreases with an increase in line size.|
|8.||Suitability for low-velocity measurement||Suitable||Stops the measurement.|
|9.||Durability||No moving parts and hence no wear and tear and virtually maintenance-free.||Diaphragm-based sensor and hence is prone to wear and tear.|
